That thing is insanely clean. I am so jealous. I have like 1/4 of your interior and 1/2 of that 1/4 don't work lol

I almost hated to do this to such a clean XJ, but it'll be a lot cleaner when I'm done. Just a little bigger... Of course it decided to snow/hail when I was folding the rears. Not fun to bash your freezing knuckles..

Looks clean... both stock as well as the mods that you are tastefully doing... I wish I could find the deals you have been on CL... guess not as lucky in my area... Can't wait to see as it continue to progress!!!

Did some flexing to see if it was going to rub on anything. Everything looks good. No rubbing at all.

Default Bushwackers

Had a hard time deciding on what flares to go with. For the BW's 400 buck price tag, I thought about building some. I wasn't sure when I'd get around to doing it, so I decided to drop the cash and make it legal now. Cops are pretty strict where I live. Here are some pics

Default Bumper

This is why I love CL. A 4wd part place had this as there display unit at one time. Since then, it has been in their warehouse for 5 years. They couldn't sell it as new, so they put it on CL. Had 2 little scuffs on it. Other than that its brand new. Still has the sticker on it. 400 bucks! I guess its still almost a quarter of what I paid for the jeep.. But I could say that about everything on it!

Default ARB Bumper/Smittybilt XRC8 Comp

Got the bumper installed. Now its starting to look complete again. The winch is mounted in the bumper, but the fairlead that came with the kit wont work with the ARB bumper. The guy I bought it from is going to swap it out for a roller fairlead. Ill just get the Daystar synthetic rollers. Though Ive heard you can use the new steal rollers without an issue. I've heard mixed opinions, so Ill play it safe and get the Daystar ones.

Subscribed! I love the way your 2 door looks! I agree with your comment about the interior. I have my professionally cleaned twice a year because i like it, stain free and nice looking.

Glad to see another 2 door on here too
